Hello beautiful!! Happy New Year!! So it’s been three years since we last spoke. I am so excited to be back to see you! How are you doing? Well I know we have so much to catch up on and I can’t wait to hear more from you.
So where have I been, to answer your question in short, I have been resting in God.
I have so much to share, feeling overwhelmed with where to start, I prayed and asked God how to start. He told me start with inner beauty. Its been three years since we talked about inner beauty. My biggest desire in the previous season was to know and understand beauty from God’s perspective, because I didn’t feel beautiful and I wanted to be beautiful to him.
There were five aspects of beauty that He showed me, I will be breaking them down over the month of January. I have to tell you going back and reading the blog has been such a joyful expereince. I have found by keeping a journal of what the Lord speaks to me in a certain season, and then going back and read it in a later season reveals to me more of His heart towards me. How He speaks to me in a specific way in a specific season. He knows exactly what I need in that moment. He meets me where I am.
I will be linking the original posts from my previous season with the groom and then I will be summarizing that very same definition in this new season.
Okay, summarizing what Jesus showed me about my beauty.
“You see Jamie, your beauty is like my beauty it is multi-dimensional. Just like you enjoy my creation from all your senses, your beauty is magnified when you see it as more than just the surface level. I created your beauty to be multi-dimensional. Every aspect about you, your personality, your gifts, your mannerisms, your loud vivacious laugh, your ability to love and serve others, your dreams, your ability to see me in all aspects of your life, your ability to find the joy I have for you in this life, all of these things are what makes you beautiful. If you want to portray the beauty of the reflection you saw in the mirror in your dream, then start to look at your beauty from a multidimensional perspective. This is how I see you and this is how the heavenly father sees you.” See original post here.
God spoke to me about my beauty, because back then He knew that is how I would understand it. Today, I can see that He was speaking Ephesians 3:18-19 into my heart. The beauty He was speaking to me about back then, is the beauty He placed in His creation. We are his masterpiece, which is a reflection of Him (We will dive into this thought at little more later)
Ephesians 3:18-19 TPT
Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!
What I have learned….
His beauty is multi-dimensional, because there is no limitation to it. It is not just one thing, it is multiple things all at once. His beauty grows and incubates in love, because it is not limited. When we look at ourselves from this perspective we grow in beauty.
Have you ever got stuck with seeing yourself as only one aspect of who you are? Fill in the blank I am a ____ (daughter, sister, wife, mother, worker, creative, etc.) When we see ourselves as just one dimension, we limit ourselves and it will lead us to wrong thinking that leads us to frustration. I believe my groom was saying to me, Jamie you are so much more than how you see yourself. Love expands it does not limit. The more you operate in all the aspects that I designed in you the more you come alive. I was so focused on my one-track mind in my natural life, being a daughter, sister, friend, worker, leader and creative. He was expanding my mind to come alive in my spiritual world, to see a part of me I had not seen before because I was looking in the natural world and not in the heavenly realm. He said to me “The heavenly realm is where you were formed and created and it is more real then the natural world you are living now. It is eternal.”
Where might you be limiting your beauty? Do you feel frustration in area of your life? Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like everything you try is not working?
Reflect today. Take just 5 minutes to answer these questions. Is there a place in your life that needs to be awaken by his multi-dimensional love?
Until next week beautiful, may you experience his multi-dimensional love this week. May He inspire you to see yourself from the spiritual realm to awaken a love in your heart that grows in abundance.
